Located in downtown Detroit, the Apple Developer Academy space is designed to facilitate collaboration and engagement, preparing students for success in the iOS app economy. In 2021 and early 2022, the Apple Developer Academy has continued to grow with these new developments: • The first U.S. Apple Developer Academy, launching in Detroit in October 2021 as part of our REJI initiative (see page 60 ) • The first women-dedicated Apple Developer Academy, launching in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in November 2021 • The first Korean Apple Developer Academy, launching in Pohang in March 2022 and serving 200 students from across Korea • A new foundation program location in France • A significant new investment in Naples, Italy, in September 2021, expanding academy programming through 2025 and launching a new alumni resource program Entrepreneur Camp Research shows that founders from underrepresented communities face unique challenges, especially when starting and leading technology companies. We created Apple Entrepreneur Camp with the goal of supporting these founders and their app-driven businesses as they build the next generation of cutting-edge apps, and to form a global alumni network that encourages the pipeline and longevity of underrepresented founders and developers in technology. The program includes cohorts for female, Black, and Hispanic/Latinx founders and developers from underrepresented communities. During these app-focused technology labs, participants receive one-on-one code-level guidance on their apps from Apple experts and engineers, as well as support, inspiration, and insights from top Apple leaders. The core programming is based on Developer Labs at WWDC, where participants work on improving a specific app in bespoke, one-on-one sessions with Apple engineers and experts. The program also includes community sessions, networking, and opportunities for ongoing support. After the lab concludes, participants become part of a growing community of other exceptional alumni who can help them build their business. Apple Entrepreneur Camp alumni have gone on to secure major funding rounds, garner numerous awards and accolades, and significantly expand both their teams and app users worldwide. Alumni apps are featured on the Entrepreneur Camp website . There have been 12 Entrepreneur Camp cohorts since our first class of female founders and developers in 2019. Since the launch of REJI, we expanded to hosting cohorts for Black founders in 2021 and Hispanic/Latinx founders in early 2022. Participants have also received additional guidance from Harlem Capital, Collab Capital, and Vamos Ventures as part of REJI (see page 61 ). Entrepreneur Camp alumni hail from 26 countries, and we continue to focus on expanding our outreach to underrepresented founders and developers around the world. Affordable housing initiative Through our affordable housing initiative, announced in 2019, we’ve made a comprehensive $2.5 billion commitment to address the housing availability and affordability crisis in California. Together with government and community-based organizations, the initiative has sought to jump-start long-term developments, help first-time buyers purchase homes, and support new housing and related programs to alleviate homelessness. As of July 2021, we’ve deployed more than $1 billion supporting projects and communities in more than 25 counties across California. 92% Apple Development Academy alumni employment rate* 40% female and 39 percent non-STEM students in 2021 academy program 34% female in 2021 foundations program * As of our last alumni survey in December 2021 Appendix Governance Communities Suppliers Customers Our People Environment Introduction Apple’s 2022 ESG Report 64
